I decided to create this thread because it's more reasonable to have one thread for updates, and the others for general discussion etc. All the updates for Wars of the East 1.05 will be posted here.

I think spears would be more suited to them personally, so a Rohirrim reskin would have been better IMO.

Skin looks nice though.

Playing games? Ah, you'll never be a good modder if you get involved in actually playing them!

Spears would be nice, but I wanted them to be different from Haradrim Riders, who have spears and use Rohirrim anims :p

Maybe make some of the riders have swords and some have axes?

Ithron's not a modeler, so without donations the stuff he can do is very limited.

If that's referring to the axemen then I don't see what right he has to deny anyone the use of it.

I'm not keen on the axemen model personally. It's one of my really old ones, when I called myself a modeler without actually being able to model :grin:

BTW, what other units did you take? I know I allowed you to, but I'm just wondering which ones :crazed:

I guess you're right... SS can't deny me from using them, but I put his name there because the model was used in his mod. I think the axemen model is OK, and since I didn't have any other suitable model, I used that one. I have also taken your Easterling Archer, Orc Pikeman and Morgul Pikemen models. Hope you don't mind :grin:

I made 2 different orc pikemen? O_o

I don't even remember making one for BoG ^^

No of course I don't mind. I made those models for a reason, which was to help people without modeling skills of their own, so you're more than welcome to use them :grin:

If you need any simple unit/building models, just ask me :crazed: I don't have time to model an entire faction, but I can help out with 1 or 2 models ^_^

Zimoo - Easterling Axemen, Easterling Swordsmen, Easterling Bowmen, Haradrim Swordsmen, Beregond, Orc Captain/Orc spearmen, Morgul Pikemen, Clansmen of Lamedon, Axemen of Lossarnach, Rohirrim Axemen, Erkenbrand

According to BoG's website, those are the models you have made for BoG :grin:
And if you can help, would you be able to model one or more of the following:

- Rhun Royal Guard (Basically a CaH Easterling with all the Rhunic stuff, and a shield would be also nice. Could use Boromir's anims if possible)
- Corsair Ballista (Hopefully it's not too hard to model, you could just replace the Uruks of the Isengard ballista with corsairs)
- Rhun Archery Range (A simple archery range model that looks a bit Rhunic)

If you can't make any of those models, that's fine.
Thanks in advance!

I made the skin darker, that's why there's no glow :sad:

Heh, I see our old Wainrider model is turning up in other places except BoG now. Great work removing the glow. :)

Of course I like the rest of the stuff too.

Great stuff. It will be great to play it :)

Quick question: How much did you darken the skin because I have this problem with one of my models and I would like to remove it :p
